Hi operators !
I’m searching for a midi controller for a live performance use (and producing too). I’m mainly using FL Studio, and a very little bit of Ableton.
I would like to control some effects and loops/tracks, with pads and knobs. Maybe some VSTs too.
I was wondering if the launchpad mini or launchkey mini are sufficient ?
I’ve never tried these kind of stuffs, and I really wanna produce without my mouse and mainly with my hardware and future controller
I don’t wanna put more than 150-200€
Hi operators !
I’ve been through many many many controllers in my quest for studio/performance perfection.
If you need keys too, I can recommend the M-Audio Code series. I have the 49 key version, but there are 25 and 61 key versions too. The semi-weighted keys are the best I’ve found and the pads are nice too. LEDs are totally customizable with tons of colors to choose from. DAW integration isn’t quite as dummy-proof as similar controllers from Akai and Novation, but it’s super flexible if you put the time in to set everything up.
Thanks for your answers guys
I haven’t got an iPad, and for sure, I prefer real knobs sliders, pads and keys ^^. Launch Control XL seems pretty nice ! Novation Zero SL Mk2 too, but seems more expensive right ?
Beatstep looks very good, I have to try this in a shop
Akai APC float my boat sure ! I had a MPC few years ago, and love the construction quality :). They seem to be Ableton oriented only ?
M-Audio Code 25 is very cute ! But already have 2 keys controllers.
APC 40 is awesome but a bit expensive for me. I’m gonna look the APC mini and a launch control, or beatstep.
Rather than just buying something online I’d get along to a shop and get hands on with the controllers.
